I did the unthinkable!!!
Friday night I accidentally dropped my Xoom. And unfortunately concrete won. The Xoom still works (surprisingly) but screen is cracked in numerous places. I have already ordered a new screen and digitizer, so that part is ok. I am wondering about the back upper plastic piece? Is there anywhere online where i can buy a replacement as there is a wicked gash now in the opposite corner of the power button, in landscape mode. If anyone knows, please let me know. Thank you all in advance!!!!

ouch! sorry that happened bro.
hmm, i usually check cnn.cn for parts, but they only have the digitizer and lcd
Yeah I checked there. I already ordered the digitizer from another site. But like I said the gash is an eye sore and would like to replace it. I guess I may have to get a skin or something from bodyguardz or phantomskinz. Thank you though.

the LCD and glass digitizer are two separate things..
if the glass is cracked but the LCD is still good, then you only need the glass digitizer..... they are between $50.00 and $75.00 on ebay.
the LCD costs around $150.00
you will need to use some heat to remove the plastic trim from your "old" glass.. you can put it in the oven fro a few min to heat it or use a hair dryer or a heat gun, if you use a heet gun be careful not to get it too hot and deform it.
I used some black RTV sealer to reattach the plastic to the glass, you need a very thin bead... use the old glass as a guide to see where they put the adhesive.

good price on that site for the LCD! I bookmarked it.
How far was it Above the ground for that to break this way? It is supposed to be solid and not break that easily
you've got 10" of glass screen, If you drop it on concrete it's going to break.....I don't care how high you drop it from! LOL!
exactly. i want the knife!
